Could fan favorite series Jericho get a second life on Netflix?
I will preface this story by saying I have not ever seen an episode of JERICHO, partly because I avoid anything broadcast on CBS since I am under the age of 50. With that being said, the fandom behind the series seems to rival that of Joss Whedon's FIREFLY and BUFFY contingent. When the show was initially cancelled after one season, fans banded together and shipped 20 tons of nuts to CBS who eventually brought the show back for a short second season only to cancel it a second time.
Like BUFFY, JERICHO has benefited from active fans online which has led to two "seasons" in comic book form and the lingering hope for a big screen version of the post-apocalyptic serial. But, the next life for JERICHO may end up on the small screen again, thanks to Netflix.
At the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, JERICHO creator Stephen Chbosky had this to say:
“You know WME (William Morris Endeavor) Agency, who represents me, Jon Turteltaub and many other people, and they’ve been talking to Netflix and you never know. I can’t say what it will be in season three, but I’m excited for the new developments... Well, if you really, really want to know about season three, the best thing would be to read the comics. That tells a better story.”
So, there you have it JERICHO fans. There is still a chance that Netflix could bring back another series like they have with ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT. It doesn't sound like Chbosky knows if a Netflix season would adapt the already created comics that pick up the story or an entirely new set of stories. Either way, the on demand world seems to be gaining momentum.
